My First Giveaway!


August 3, 2010 by Dana

Well, it’s official, I am now a “real” food blogger…. I’m hosting my very first giveaway!

I’m especially excited about this giveaway because I am always on the lookout for guilt free, tasty frozen treats to beat the summer heat.   With Yoplait Whips!, I can make easy, and portable frozen snacks and desserts to satisfy my after dinner sweet tooth.  It’s the perfect fit for me (and hopefully for you, too!)

Through MyBlogSpark, Yoplait has offered me and one lucky reader a pizepack.  This weekend, I received mine, which included a VIP Coupon for a free sample of Yoplait Whips! yogurt, a canvas cooler bag and an adorable set of four ice cream cone shaped popsicle molds!  I was able to make my cute little ice cream shaped frozen yogurt for an after dinner treat.

I chose a container of the Strawberry Mist flavor, and made two yummy pops.  Jake and I both enjoyed our strawberry pops, and I’m looking forward to trying these out with some other flavors!  There are nine flavors to choose from: Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Raspberry, Key Lime Pie, Lemon Burst, Orange Créme, Peaches ‘N Cream, Raspberry Mousse, Strawberry Mist, and Vanilla Créme.

To enter the giveaway, please do the following for up to 6 entries:

1.  Leave a comment telling me which Yoplait Whips! flavor you would like to try.
2.  Subscribe to my posts feed and leave a comment letting me know.
3.  Subscribe to my email feed and leave a comment letting me know.
4.  Add me to your blogroll and leave a comment letting me know.
5.  Follow me on Twitter and leave a comment letting me know.
6.  Tweet a link to this post using the hashtags #myblogspark and #danasfoodforthought and leave a comment letting me know.

The giveaway will end at midnight on Sunday, August 8, and I will post the winner (determined by a random number generator) on Monday morning.

If you are so anxious to try this frozen treat, and you just cannot wait for the prizepack, use this link to download a printable coupon for $0.55 towards the purchase of any two cups of Yoplait Whips! yogurt today!

(By the way, you don’t have to have the popsicle molds to enjoy this treat, you can just throw the yogurt containers into the freezer overnight…. The molds just add to the cuteness factor!)

Good Luck!!

*This Yoplait Whips! yogurt, prize pack, information and giveaway were all provided by Yoplait through MyBlogSpark.

    I love the raspberry mousse flavor. I would like to try the chocolate raspberry one but I don’t think I have seen it in stores around here. Either that or it is very popular. :-) Those cones are adorable!
